Jeremy Miller

Jeremy Miller

CEO & Founder

Jeremy Miller is the CEO and Founder of FSAstore.com, the only e-commerce site exclusively focused on Flexible Spending Account (FSA) products and services. FSAstore.com's mission is to make it simple and convenient for the 35 million U.S. consumers with FSAs to use and manage their FSAs. Jeremy recognized the need for FSAstore.com after a successful career managing and growing small businesses, where his responsibilities included managing HR and the FSA account process for employees, most recently as Manager of Operations at Gehry Technologies, the technological division of Frank Gehry's architectural practice. He found the confusion and inconvenience surrounding FSAs resulted in participant frustration and ultimately the forfeiture of employee's tax-free income.

In response to this market need, FSAstore.com was launched in the spring of 2010, after winning Columbia Business School's Odyssey Global MBA Award for best entrepreneurial business idea. Initial funding came from the Columbia Business School's Lang Fund and other Angels. Since inception the company has closed 4 successful rounds of financing, amassed a customer base in excess of 200k, and has exceeded site and revenue expectations every quarter.

Jeremy graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from U.C. Berkeley and received his MBA from Columbia Business School. He lives in NYC with his wife and two children.
